Hhhhmmm interesting read. Prior to LO we used to go to in laws for tea on a Sunday but LO is such a pain whilst I'm eating so we don't go now. Instead I try to go over once a week on a Friday. Often they will pop up one evening during the week too. LO is their only grandkid and they dote on him.
We see my mum at least once a week. I spend every with her. We lost my dad last year and so I make a conscious effort to spend at least one day of the weekend with her as I know she struggles without my dad. Lx
Tend to pop in to my Mum and Dad's usually 3 times I week I would think - they live 10 min walk away and Dad is in a wheelchair and can't really get into our house easily. However Mum tells everyone we always have time to do toddler groups but never to see her. She also looks after DD once a fortnight for a few hours on a Saturday to allow me & DH to go out.
in-laws are quite active themselves so sometimes it can be a few weeks between seeing them - but we try to go for lunch or something at least once a month and especially if they've got one of BILs and family going as well, or other family friends or relatives. They would like to see us more sometimes, but often if we suggest going over they've already got something on!
Going to be harder when I go back to work. Tend to visit my Mum in the week - and will only have 2 days off when i will want to see friends and spend my time with DD on her own some of the time too. Weekends may become more of a juggle
I take Charlie to see my mum once a week (she lives an hour away) and i spend about 5 hours during the day with her but usually go before my dad gets home from work (about 5.30) so i can get him settled before the night shift, so my dad sees him about once a month. We take him to MIL's (45 mins away) prob once a fortnight for a couple of hours after boyf finishes work but Charlie hates visiting as he likes his won bed and has a nap every 2 and half hours. We have told them they can come to ours any time but my mum refuses to come to me because she doesnt like the journey (shes only been here twice in 2 years since we moved here), and MIL also chooses not to come here if she thinks she can get us to go to her instead.l Anyone would think we have a horrible home, however i have OCD when it comes to cleaning so at least my house stays clean and tidy.lol x
